In this photo taken Sunday Feb. 2, 2014, people take photos and look at the flooding from the River Parrett on the Somerset Levels from Barrow Mump, Somerset, England, Here on the Somerset Levels _ a flat, marshy region of farmland dotted with villages and scored by rivers and ditches _ it's often wet. But not this wet. Thousands of acres of this corner of southwest England have been under water for weeks, some villages have been cut off for more than a month, and local people forced to take boats to get to school, work and shops are frustrated and angry. Some blame government budget cuts and environmental bureaucracy. Others point to climate change. Even plump, endangered water voles are the target of ire. (AP Photo/Alastair Grant)
